It’s that time of year again! The e mails and messages have started pouring in for me, and I’ve been spending a lot of time developing individual diets for those looking to regain control of their eating habits for the New Year. It’s a lot of fun. I love doing it. It’s like a puzzle, and I’m putting the pieces carefully together to develp the perfect meal plan based on individual goals and preferences. It’s so fun. But the most rewarding is seeing those who not only put it into action, but who gain the confidence and knowledge to make healthier decisions all together. Awesome!
Onto our New Year… hmmm, Resolutions. Mine is not your typical “lose weight, get in the best shape of my life,” although that is a quite good one! I’m striving to just be the best ME I can be. I’ve learned so much over the years that you can not compare yourself to other people. To how they look, their skills and talents, to what they have accomplished. Rather, it is more beneficial to look within yourself. How do YOU look, feel. What are YOUR skills and talents. What have YOU accomplished? Now that you’ve done that, take a look at how you can improve YOURself. There is no one more “you-er” than you!
I don’t think the New Year is only the time for moving forward and setting more goals to tackle. But to also look back and see how far you’ve come, and what you’ve accomplished in the last year.
2012 recap…let’s see. We opened a new business, moved into a new house, watched our daughter grow into a wonderful little girl, and created TWO new lives. It was an absolutely marvelous year!
This year I want to focus on keeping the pattern. Having twins was such a new experience (obviously!), that came with a lot of new demands. But it is also such a wonderful, fun, amazing experience. The boys are great babies, and honestly this journey is not nearly as hard as I thought it would be. Or rather, what I was “warned” it would be. It is though, quite rewarding. I’m hoping to continue to keep it all together as best as I can, and be able to give enough of myself to each of these children. They deserve the absolute best, and that means me being the best ME I can be.
So here we are. Lucky #13, show me what you’ve got! I’m ready for a new beginning, and to create new experiences and memories. To further create myself and to guide my children in the same direction. And, of course, to enjoy these experiences and memories with my soulmate. Happy 2013!
